Kendrys Morales is eligible to come off the disabled list next week, but yesterday manager Mike Scioscia made it clear that he’s likely still at least three weeks from returning to the Angels’ lineup.

Morales has been taking batting practice, but still hasn’t been cleared to run at full speed 10 months after breaking his ankle and, according to Scioscia, would likely need to play at least 10 games on a minor-league rehab assignment before being activated.

That makes a late-April debut the best-case scenario. Morales suffered the injury on May 29 and initially hoped to be ready for Opening Day.

    Its that darned “s” he put on his first name. Its jinxing him. Like when Dionne Warwick added an “e” to the end of her last name and her career cratered.
